We all know that self tanning is a much safer alternative to the real thing. However, the amount of tanning products available can mean that choosing the perfect product is a slightly overwhelming task.
Whether you’re looking for a hint of golden glow or something a little deeper, we’ve gathered the best self tanning products for every skill level and occasion, that’ll have you looking and feeling like a glowing goddess!
The Bondi Sands 1 Hour Express Self Tanning Foam is super easy to use and perfect for when you want to achieve a deep tan but you’re lacking in time. Leave the quick-drying formula on for 1-3 hours, depending on how deep you’d like your tan and how much time you have.
Our favourite thing about this tan is that it leaves a deep, golden glow behind straight after showering and it also smells coconuts!
Available in 3 shades, depending on the depth of tan you’re wanting to achieve, the Vita Liberata Invisi Foaming Tan Water, is chemical-free and perfect for those with sensitive skin. It’s also jam packed with hydrating botanicals, which add moisture and radiance to the skin.
Those of you who can’t live without white will also love this tan. The formula is completely clear and won’t transfer onto clothing, bedding or towels!
Any men out there wanting to achieve a subtle and natural glow will love the Beauty Dept Natural Gradual Tanning Lotion- Man Tan. The thick, luxurious formula smooths on easily to infuse skin with a soft golden tone, while providing antioxidant protection against external aggressors.
The Man Tan is infused with a masculine, citrus scent and will leave skin feeling healthy and soft.
The Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2-3 Week Tan has transformed the tanning world with its unique pHenO2 technology, that ensures it’ll last up to four times longer than a regular self tan. If you’re someone that hates having to scrub their faded tan weekly, you need this!
The formula is also enriched with a unique moisture lock system, which ensures skin stays smooth and hydrated.
Recommended for experienced self tanners only, the Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Ultra Dark was developed by tanners, for tanners.
The salon inspired formula boasts a deep, olive-based colour, that’s streak-free, quick drying and smells good. Talk about jack of all trades!
Perfect for first-time self tanners, the Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tanning Milk applies like a regular moisturiser, but develops into a soft, golden shade that looks natural and can be built up over a few days.
Enriched with hydrating Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, this skin loving formula is perfect for every-day use or even to extend the life of your natural tan.
Using a tan-extending moisturiser will not only ensure that your skin stays nourished and hydrated, but will assist your tan in staying perfect for as long as possible and fading evenly. Shop our favourite tan extender here.
